Joining PIAA: Kwik Kopy owners

The majority of Kwik Kopy franchisees are set to become members of the peak industry association PIAA, with the owners’ group unanimously voting to join at its biennial conference.

There are 84 Kwik Kopy franchisees responsible for 96 stores, four-fifths of whom are in the owners group. All these will now become PIAA members. Kwik Kopy itself is also a member.

Benefits in joining: Nick Tuit, Kwik Kopy owners chair and Circular Quay owner

Nick Tuit, owner of Kwik Kopy Circular Quay and chair of the owners group welcomed the move. He said, “Under Andrew Macaulay’s tenure as CEO the PIAA has clearly put its troubles of a few years ago behind it. Today the association offers tremendous benefits to its members, in IR, government relations, advocacy, training, and through its sustainable print programme.

“It will be clearly beneficial for Kwik Kopy franchisees to be part of such a dynamic and engaged association, as it works for the industry and individual print business owners.

“The print industry needs a clear and cohesive voice to cut through, and the PIAA provides this. It also provides on-demand services that will be useful to Kwik Kopy franchisees. We can say the two organisations are now joined at the hip.”

Andrew Macaulay said, “We welcome the Kwik Kopy owners to the association, and look forward to serving them. It is an exciting move which will benefit us all.”

The Kwik Kopy owners group has been in existence for 25 years. Tuit says, “We have just had our conference, which was the most positive I have attended in the 14 years since I took on Circular Quay. There was great networking, success strategy sharing, and supplier support.”
